Four-year-old Joseph Orellana's progress was just in time for Friday's grand opening of the bright yellow, red and blue playground equipment behind the school. With a wide grin, Joseph climbed head first into a red covered slide and coasted down on his belly.

A state hearing officer is expected to decide within two weeks whether a quadriplegic 6-year-old girl may attend a regular kindergarten class this fall. The parents of Stephanie Stratford argue that their daughter should be allowed to attend Rancho Vista Elementary School in September with two of her brothers. In spite of their daughter's disabilities, the parents have said Stephanie is a bright girl capable of learning with non-handicapped children.
